Davis Green Cotton

H005

An intentional cross between Pima cotton and a Louisiana green cotton, selected by Phreadde Davis in Albuquerque to create a richer color and longer fiber. The lint color is variable, sometimes pale green, olive, blue-green, or brown.   It is said to produce a longer fiber than most green cottons. Warmer weather and more mature plants produce a darker green fiber.  (Our growout in Tucson produce more green color than our crop from Patagonia.)  Boil the fibers (usually after weaving) to bring out the color … additional washings will darken the color further.

Cotton seeds can only be shipped to AZ, NM, TX and OK addresses. Approx. 2g/20 seeds per packet.
